Publix fills 1 millionth free antibiotic prescription, adds another drug to program


LAKELAND, Fla. Publix filled its 1 millionth free antibiotic prescription through its new drug program. The program started in August 2007 and includes the following antibiotics: amoxicillin, cephalexin, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, ciprofloxacin, penicillin VK, ampicillin, erythromycin (excluding Ery-Tab), and the newest addition, doxycycline hyclate capsules.

“Filling our millionth prescription under our free prescription drug program is a milestone we’re proud to accomplish. Our customers and the medical community have been very pleased with the program,” said Maria Brous, Publix media and community relations director. “Adding doxycycline hyclate capsules to the program will help meet the health and wellness needs of even more of our customers and associates.”

New or current customers simply have to provide their Publix pharmacist with their prescription, up to a 14-day supply, and it will be filled at no charge. The number of prescriptions customers may fill for free is not limited. The free antibiotics are offered to customers regardless of their prescription insurance provider.
